The Frog and the Peach in New Brunswick was honored by The Garden State Culinary Arts Awards on May 7 with the prize for “Best Restaurant in New Jersey.”

Modeled after the James Beard awards, these are state’s first juried food awards. Nominations were sought from the public, and then the GSCAA executive committee, consisting of food writers around the state, named ten nominees in 13 categories.

The Frog and The Peach has been one of New Jersey’s top restaurants since 1983. Bruce Lefebvre, executive chef since 2000, bought the restaurant in 2012. Lefebvre was trained at The Culinary Institute of America and is lauded for his modern take on American cuisine. He also shares a passion for local New Jersey products and fish.

The Frog and The Peach isn’t just a delicious dining destination; it’s also a great spot for meetings or events. From the intimate Wine Room to the upstairs that feels tucked away from the main dining room to the lush oasis-style room, The Frog and The Peach has a variety of spaces for your next event.

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

 

These properties are contemporary, quirky and rich in local flavor.
